Positivity leads to productivity, as Heather Rome found during her time at DAI. When people feel happy in what they do, they are more willing to put in the extra effort required to help a company achieve its goals. With that in mind, here are a couple of tips that should help you create a positive workplace.

Be Appreciative

If you have the opportunity to lead a project of any size, always be sure to show your appreciation to your team whenever they accomplish a task. Just a simple compliment or thank-you can boost a person’s mood and ensure they remain positive throughout the course of the day. This appreciation should also extend to all people who have helped the team reach success, including those with whom you rarely come into contact.


Strong leaders take the time to listen to suggestions and feedback. Being heard is one of the most encouraging aspects of positive team membership, communicates that team members are valued individuals, and leads to increased productivity. It also encourages team members to share methods that can contribute to overall increased levels of efficiency.

Have a Little Fun

While the focus of the office is on the work at hand, personal interactions and causal celebrations of team success can boost office morale. Maintaining positive team morale leads to increased productivity, team dedication, and greater levels of overall success.
